So, the poster is better than the movie.  That happens sometimes.  But that is the reason we decided to watch it and it was a mistake mostly.  I can’t really tell you anything about the plot that I haven’t mentioned because that’s all there is really.  It’s just the crew of a rig, fighting a monster, because they’re stuck during a storm.

We could have done without the flashbacks to events that happened only ten minutes ago.  People get all stupid and go off by themselves and of course, get killed.  It doesn’t establish any rules either.  It’s a pretty crappy movie – a subpar creature feature.  The only thing good about it was the boobs.

Our score: 32.
